Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9854949A1] A single-grip harvester head comprises a frame (1, 2), which defines a tree feeding path, and two feeding roller arms (5), which are pivotable in relation to the frame (1, 2) about a pivot axis (A1) each defined by a pivot pin (6) and which support a rotatable feeding roller (7) each. Each feeding roller arm (5) is formed as an angular lever with two lever legs (5a, 5b), the feeding roller (7) being supported at the free end of one of the legs (5a) and the pivot pin (6) of the feeding roller arm (5) being positioned in the angular area between the legs. The two pivot axes (A1) are located in a common plane perpendicular to the tree feeding path. Each pivot pin (6) is articulated to the frame (1, 2) at one of its ends by means of a ball joint (13) and controlled at its other end, in such a way that the pivot axis (A1) is movable in said plane but fixed in a direction perpendicular to this plane. The other leg (5b) of each feeding roller arm (5) is articulated to a slide (17) by means of a ball joint (16), which slide is reciprocatable in the direction of the tree feeding path in relation to the frame (1, 2) to maintain, in the pivoting of the feeding roller arms (5), a constant distance between the ball joints (16) by means of which the arms (5) are articulated to the slide (17).
